STMicroelectronics Highlights Its Broad IoT Product Portfolio

By Paula Bernier November 28, 2016

There has been a whole lot of consolidation recently in the semiconductor space, but STMicroelectronics remains among the world’s top five semiconductor companies, with 2015 revenue of $6.9 billion, and a broad range of solutions that address the Internet of Things.

Just last week, in fact, the company introduced its STSAFE Trusted Platform Modules, which store system authentication data like cryptographic keys and software measurements in hardware that can’t be accessed or altered. These modules can be used in computers and other smart connected devices, and conform with the Trusted Computing Group’s TPM 2.0 specification.

The week prior, STMicroelectronics released a radio chip for the IoT called the S2-LP transceiver. The company said this solution is ideal for networked devices such as alarm systems, surveillance equipment, and smart energy metering solutions, as well as long-range radio links used to connect devices like remote sensors directly to the cloud without a local gateway.

Product Marketing Manager Stuart McLaren added that the company’s new STM32H7 is another recently released product from STMicroelectronics. McLaren, who met with me earlier this month at TMC Editors’ Day in Santa Clara, Calif., explained that this 400MHz high-performance microcontroller has built-in graphics (offering the ability to support four videos simultaneously) and security capabilities, and is good for audio processing as well. He also added that STMicroelectronics offers Nucleo boards for expansion and the ability to try new ideas quickly, a software environment for STM32 configuration, middleware, preconfigured function packs, and support for a wide variety of sensors.

City, home, industry, and wearables are the IoT applications on which STMicroelectronics is focused, McLaren explained, adding that the company identifies smart driving as its own separate category. All those IoT applications, he continued, share the need for processing and security, sensing and the ability to offer feedback, connectivity, signal conditioning, and power and energy management.
